- Australia’s restrictions explained: state by state
New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian has said the number of visitors allowed in homes in her state will increase from 20 to 30, as she foreshadowed that a range of Covid-19 restrictions will be eased next week.
AAP reports that in addition to the changes for visitors to a home, cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs will be allowed to double their capacity with one person allowed per two square metres.
Hotel quarantine workers in Victoria will have their contacts and members of their house traced in advance, and some will be made to live in the hotel, when the state fully resumes its quarantine system that was the subject of a lengthy inquiry.
Announcing the tighter protocols, premier Daniel Andrews also said there will be “exclusive workforce” that will only work in the state’s hotel quarantine.
To give you a sense of what I can say today, we’ll have an exclusive workforce that will only work for us. They won’t have any second jobs.
We may well have groups, not necessarily every staff member, but some staff members who actually live in the hotel. A bit of a fly-in-fly-out arrangement. We’ll advance contact trace all of those people and know who they live with and what the people that they live with do for a living.
